The food is very good. Is your typical Chinese food, but not fast food. The prices are a little high. We mostly order to go, but have used the restaurant on occasion. It is never completely full, but maybe it is because of the time of evening that we go. But if you want Chinese food in Bandera, go here,... More

We've always enjoyed the food, not 5-star but good. The service is speedy & pleasant. The atmosphere is bland & could use an upgrade. The shrimp toast is my favorite. The wine is priced to high for what they are offering.

While the flavor of the food was fine, the serving size of the lunch plate was ridiculous. I had the Mongolian beef with fried rice and there couldn't have been more than half a cup of each, there was just barely enough food to cover the plate. The won-ton soup had about a cup of broth with one won-ton. What... More

We stopped there and liked the willingness of the chef to integrate tofu into our dining choices. It is nothing fancy but serves good food.

I have eaten Chinese food at many restaurants. China Bowl is very good and maybe too American. The lunch menu is a great value - soup, egg roll, entree - vegetables are always very fresh. Of course, they have take-out and has always been hot when it is picked up.
